What is it about?

Premature ventricular contraction is a common arrhythmia that causes a large number of clinical symptoms, adversely impacts the quality of life, and can even initiate serious arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. The incidence of premature ventricular contraction is higher in hypertensive patients, particularly if concomitant left ventricular hypertrophy is present. Our research find low-dose bisoprolol effectively reduces the number of premature ventricular contraction in hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy.

Why is it important?

This study was conducted on the characteristics of PVC in hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy and to evaluate the effect of bisoprolol on PVC in Vietnamese patients with hypertension and LVH.


Our study has exclusion criteria to exclude causes, risk factors that lead to increasing PVCs, and influence on treatment outcome of PVCs. The relationship between the results of treatment with bisoprolol and grading of LVH and the improvement of LVH before and after treatment.
